Thought others might find this useful. I'm so fed up with telemarketing calls and am usually quite rude - yes, I know they're just people trying to make a living but they are so intrusive and alwasy cal at really bad moments. I'm especially sick of sky tv calling me. Last night I asked how to get my name taken off their list and was given this website. www.marketing.org.nz/registration.php There's a form on there to fill in and then you'll be taken off the list of companies that belong to this marketing organisation.

It's now an automated, online form:

www.marketing.org.nz/cms/registration/2995

or you can write and ask to be removed (they call it their Name Removal Register).

Write your full name, address and telephone number and send it to:

Name Removal Register
Marketing Association
PO Box 47681
Ponsonby
Auckland

It is very important you write clearly and include ALL of the above contact details.

I also filled it in for both of the adults to cover all bases.

Yes i get really peeved with sky too. We had it years ago and every movie we watched it crapped out 10 minutes from the end! Made repeated calls to sky and they saif there wasn't a problem. Videoed it happening and sent it to them...they said tough luck so we stopped paying them. They listed us with baycorp and now the tossers have the audacity to call me and ask me if i want sky!!!!!! Boy do they get an earful [}:)]

The trouble with some women is that they get all excited about nothing,and then they marry him.

When they ring you say, "Hold on a minute", then put the phone on speakerphone and set down on the table. I have been doing the putting phone down but someone told me about the hang on and speakerphone bit so am going to do that next time. If the want to pay for the toll call they can.

You should have said, "Hang on", put the phone on speakerphone and put it on the table and walked away. :D

Hubby got a call yesterday...

"Can i speak to someone between the ages of 18-35"
"No there isnt anyone" hubby replied
"Ok so can i speak to someone over 35"
"No there isnt anyone" hubby replies again[}:)]

The telemarketer didnt quite know what to say so she then said ah ok bye :D .

They annoy me as they always ring when i'm either doing dinner or sorting out the kids for bed[:(!]

We have caller display and if it comes up as 'Private', I won't answer. If it's someone who knows us, they'll leave a message.

I had one tele-seller who said they weren't selling anything, but that they were giving us three lottery tickets and when would my husband and myself be at home? They had my name and my address, so I was a bit freaked out (in case it was a burglar). I said it sounded a bit suspicious and just to stick them in the mail. She said 'How are we going to demonstrate our... whatevers...?' I said 'That is selling something, we're not interested, give the lottery tickets to someone else'.
